that before you start picking a fight with michigan union workers. [ music ] >> this is a fight for the survival of labor unions and the american middle class they support. just minutes ago, the michigan house of representatives passed the so-called "right to work bill." it passed 58 to 52. six republicans voted know, but the bill passed. and believe me, if they can do this in michigan, they can do it anywhere in the country. it gives new meaning to the term "lame-duck session." the bill basically eviscerates bargaining. it's a move to cut off the resources that give labor unions their strength. in addition to people funding, we have seen this work before. there is no doubt what's going on here. it is a war on unions. it is a war on the democratic party. today, a lansing state journal photographer captured this video as waves of union sportupporters and police flooded the state capitol trying to stop the bill. the capitol was locked down. police say they arrested eight people inside, and even used a chemical spray to regain control control. outside, u

to be an anti-unionism that is coursing through the bloodstream. >> there is an anti-unionism that is coursing through the bloodstream of the republican legislature, but that does not mean that it's on the ground of michigan. if you ask people if it would be a good idea to put this right to work law in place, you would get the majority of the people--i don't think how much of the majority but clearly the majority who would say they do not want this to happen, and it is too divisive. the governor flip flopped in the last minute even though he campaigned on not being a divisive governor. there was pressure from members of the legislature on him. there was apparently some closed-door meeting where the senate majority leader who is a republican and who is a pro- pro-labor republican who flip flopped because he felt he might be primaried. it's being played by the billionaires who we see playing this on the national level but also michigan has a few of them that has particular clout in the republican party in michigan. >> eliot: well look, you defeated one of them twice in your gubernatorial races m

to be union jobs, inside the arena as well as outside the arena. this is important. many of us often talk about labor peace, but i am, i think in these days, talking more about labor confidence and labor happiness because labor peace often says there's a dispute going on. here we're going way beyond dispute. we're actually making some assurances that our people who work the jobs in and outside of the arena will get the respect that they deserve. this is oftentimes -- if we lay that out early, and i think this is what the warriors are doing, they're breeding confidence in our labor force. not only do you have peace, but you can have confidence that you can have families around you supported by the jobs that we're creating here because they're going to be union-paying jobs. so, according to the fiscal feasibility report that is now on file officially with our city, we have indicated that there will be over 4300 direct jobs that will be created city-wide as a result of the what r warriors arena being in san francisco. and that is over 2600 that are construction jobs and we announced and went

in the reelection in one of our biggest states in the union, it was that the people want us to come together and to stop this bickering, the ideological rigidity that we've seen, excessive amounts of -- and the excessive partisanship. and that is a huge, huge turno turnoff, because i think logical rigidity and excessive partisanship are impediments to getting people to come together with commonsense decisions for solutions. mr. president, obviously, there's an easy way, and hopefully that is what is being tweaked at the moment in a final solution with the president to speak in about 30 minutes. i hope so. mr. president, i'm going to leave you with this thought: my colleagues know that a little over a quarter century ago i had the privilege of seeing our home planet when the perspective of looking through the window of a spacecraft back at our planet. it was the 24th flight of the space shuttle. it was early in the space shuttle program. mr. president, it is indelibly etched in my mind's eye, as i looked back at earth what i saw. i did not see political divisions. i did not see religious divi
disagreement with you with regard to unions. unions are very important it was unions that allowed my parents to raise seven children and as former sharecroppers with only a second grade education, and to extend to college and allow me to be a member of the congress, it was unions. i will fight until i die the for the strength of unions because they play a significanrole. as a representative from maryland, i know how critical the northeast quarter is to ensuring mobility. the corridor is critical and hosts many rail lines, and every year, 11 million passengers, our constituents, ride amtrak in the northeast corridor. the company last week was told it is only expected to increase the population growth. is that not wonderful? it is not as fast as we need. we need modern, high-speed rail service. we need it in the northeast corridor. i remind us this is america, the greatest country in the world. we should have the best service in the world. for that reason, i strongly support the vision for a high- speed rail, set forth by president obama. to designate the northeast corridor as a high-speed qua
. >> the european union, [indiscernible] if you could give us a small order of [indiscernible] the people that may be problematic for the u.s. perspective. >> quickly, i would say to me the center of gravity is homes. right now the regime has control of homes. the reason i say that is so important is because it really, geographically, that is the first reason. it's it's many ways -- all roads go through there in every direction. primarily, you need to drive through literally to go from damascus to the coast. if the regime is going to maintain a viable line of communication to the coast, they need to maintain holmes. there are other reasons for this as well. holmes has all of the oil and gas infrastructure. i think the geography really plays a key role there. i think if the rebels to reach a position where they can actually force the regime to negotiate as opposed to just continue this slide and to defeat it will be because they have controlled homes or because they go after the coast. as far as the keeper of the thinker problematic going forward, the battalion. i think they do a good job of charac

of itself, the former soviet union had 95% turnout that doesn't reflect health and the political system. chicago can get to 110% but with the australian politicians will tell you is if you know that your base is going to be fair, their base is going to be there you don't focus on energizing and exciting and schering the crap out of your base or suppressing the oversight to read you have to focus on the voters in the middle and it changes the issues that you talk about. they don't talk a lot in their campaigns about dumbs. they talk about the economy, jobs, the climate, education and things that matter and they don't use the kind of language that we use in our campaign because they're scared or turn off the voters in the middle. at the center that since we don't like mandatory anything now come to be a champion of the mega millions lottery where your ticket is your voting stock of coming and if you look at the last mega millions where people camped out three days in advance to be given to get a ticket where of course let's face it the chance of winning was less than being struck by light

to the former soviet union on multiple occasions to gain a better understanding of how the united states could secure and dismantle weapons of mass destruction. his experiences led him to champion the landmark legislation that successfully resulted in the deactivation of nuclear warheads, making this world a safer place. to date the nunn-lugar program has deactivated more than 7 warheads that were once aimed at the united states, a contribution to which americans can never give enough thanks. over his 36 years in this institution, senators from both sides of the aisle have considered dick lugar a trusted resource when it comes to foreign policy and many other important issues. he has been a consistent resource for those who seek thoughtful answers to difficult political questions. when i first arrived here in 1989, senator lugar and i operated a unique joint office arrangement in indiana, sharing office space and staff in our state. many of our colleagues were surprised by this arrangement, but dick lugar and i like to tell hoosiers they're getting twice the service for half the price. all t
union, and surely they believe that people's rights to trial and jury trial should not be denied. so the allegations that were made by the senator from kentucky are wrong, there is absolutely no substantiation for them, including the one just referred to by senator mccain. but the statement that he makes that there is language in this bill -- here's the bill. where's the senator from kentucky? what page of the bill is he referring to? the language that he says denies people the right to trial. it's just simply not there, and i yield the floor. the presiding officer: the senator from arkansas. mr. pryor: i'm going to try to keep my remarks to about five minutes here. i would first, though, like to thank senators levin and mccain for their leadership on this legislation. they really set the tone and they've been good role models for the entire senate on how legislation should be conducted. so i want to thank both of them. i think men of my colleagues feel the very same way, that they appreciated how we've -- appreciate how we've handled the defense authorization. it's a massive underta
